Food For Thought – Was Martin Luther King Jr. Our Moses?

For the last few weeks I've been obsessed with MLK's final speech the day before he was murdered. If you listen to his words carefully, it seems like he may have been referring to a literal vision from God. Here's the short video of the end of his speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oehry1JC9Rk I've listened to this speech too many times to count over the last few weeks and there are a couple of things that seem to stand out about the first half of his speech. His vision sounds like exactly what happened to Moses. He knew that the road ahead was going to be difficult for us as a people. If you recall the story of Moses, he was taken to the mountain top and shown the Promised Land literally just before he died, which is what seems to have happened to MLK. "And ...

Have you ever given any thought to when you began and why you were born now instead of 100 years ago or 100 days ago? There are a lot of questions that we have that often go unanswered, and when we ask them, there's always that one guy (or girl) that interjects with "the Bible doesn't say, so we don't need to know". But what if the Bible does say and they just haven't looked? "For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" - Esther 4:14 Was Esther created in that time period specifically for this task? She had the right face, body, personality, intellig...

Food For Thought – The 2nd Coming

In all of our excitement about "the awakening" that's happening all over the world, how many of us have stop to really consider what's about to happen? I'm not referring to the fun stuff like Israel being restored to the land, but the supernatural judgements that are so terrifying that men's hearts will fail just from looking at what's coming (Luke 21:26). Rivers turning to blood, swarms of insects, earthquakes, thunder, lightning, and the sun turning dark are just the warm up. There's a manticore attack on unprotected humans. The "beast" will have people put to death if they don't worship him. Demons gather all the armies on earth to go to war with Christ. Years ago as I read through Revelation over and over again, I realized that the scariest thing in the book is c...
Food For Thought – Rethinking The Rapture

Food For Thought – Rethinking The Rapture

Food For Thought
The other day I made a post on Facebook, but in the post I mentioned that "the Rapture may not be what we think it is." The original comment was inspired by the following verses: "That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:" - Deuteronomy 30:3-4 I find it interesting that we are capable of putting people in space at this point in history, in January 2018 Jeanette Epps was set to become the first black woman to live on the space station, the awakening is happening, and many other signs are coming...
